Dr. Ela Perra

Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Life Coach

I am a psychologist, therapist, counselor and certified Transactional Analyst by European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) with 15 year experience working with international clientele in English and Italian.
As a Psychotherapist I have achieved measurable change with the majority of my clients using a short and strategic integrated approach with focus on Transactional Analysis. My practice aims to help people make positive changes by facilitating personal insight and exploring emotions and thoughts in the here and now.
I emphatically tailor counseling and therapy techniques to individual needs and personal circumstances. Areas of expertise include:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • relationship difficulties (individual and couples therapy)
  • eating disorders
  • expatriate life
  • challenges
  • baby blues
  • self-esteem
  • and professional development


It is not uncommon to feel hesitant or unsure about seeking help. I offer a 30 minutes preliminary session (55 €) to discuss concerns and answer to questions you might have and there is an opportunity for us to meet each other and explore whether therapy might be helpful to you. There is no commitment to ongoing work at this stage.
If however, you decide you would like to continue, we would agree regular days and times to meet on an ongoing basis. The establishment of regular sessions is important in order to facilitate, and give momentum to, the therapeutic process. Most people find that regular contact provides a sense of security and continuity whilst they are working on their emotional difficulties.

  • 1995-2000 Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Doctor in organizationalpsychology
  • 2000-2002 License to practice Psychology (State Exame)
  • 2001-2006 Doctorate degree in Transactional Analysis and Psychotherapy (SSPC-IFREP)

  • 2002-2018 Psychotherapy and Consulting private practice

transactional analysis

I chose Transactual Analysis  (TA) as an approach because I believe and respect its principles including the concept that every person is ok. „I’m ok are you ok“. TA is fundamentally a humanistic/existential model with a primary emphasis on human freedom and autonomy and provides a framework for observing what goes on between people and inside people in order to help them
make changes. The aim of change with TA is to move toward autonomy, spontaneity and intimacy. Problem solving as opposed to avoidance or passivity. An important element of TA is the treatment contract: a specific agreement between a therapist and a client to accomplish clearly stated goals.
